6:37 am
was really demoralizing. >> stephanie: yeah, i think rude we talked about this in the aftermath. the incumbent always had a bit of a handicap but i think he was trying to remain above the fray. >> that's one of the lies that republicans tell really well. oh, independent voters they don't want the politicians to attack each other. they want to hear real substantive answers on the issues. oh, bs. and republicans are repeating that talking point while shiving the democrats the whole time.
6:38 am
>> stephanie: yeah, what you said about health care, i have to say rude i have never seen a president up against this wall of obstructionism. so i think he did talk about the health care. there was a whole piece about it -- i was reading yesterday about what lengths they went to get elizabeth snow's support. this is a par they had made up their mind to obstruct him no matter what. >> i think he could have especially prior to the midterms in 2010. this is all capped in hindsight crap, but prior to the 2010 elections, he could have laid out a clear compelling case for health care. and he gets bogged down in the details, and even though romney
6:39 am
lied repeatedly and sounded like a doefer on crack, he was just intense and focused on the attack. and what is also funny about the spread between people that thought romney won versus people who thought obama won is i also think democrats are more likely to admit, yeah, okay. our guy won, than during kerry -- when bush got crushed. i don't think a lot more republicans are going to cling to their -- their good. >> stephanie: that's a good example, and i have seen others this weekend and look at how that turned out. so i don't think it means that it is over. >> no, no. i have not changed my opinion that obama is still going to win the election. i don't think it is that much of
6:40 am
a game changer, but i want it to be a big crushing victory. i want it to be something where obama cannot be denied the mandate going in where republicans at some point just look absurd constantly blocking things. >> stephanie: and we'll see if people were right about the rope a dope. >> oh that is so hopeful. i love clinging to that lifeboat right there. >> stephanie: i know.
